Does anyone know if the paths to the ebooks contained in IA ever change? I'm trying to create a series of links for a project I'm working on and would like to avoid link rot as much as possible. Thanks for any info

The links to books do not change, as long as you're using a link like this:

If you link to something that has a server in it (like ia350612 or similar), those ARE subject to change and we do not recommend linking to those. We move things around all the time, and we can better load balance traffic between primaries and backups if you use the kosher URLs above.
